Casey Anthony continued to bow her head as the doctor on the stand discussed the skull. Casey has a folded Kleenex positioned under her nose which she refused to move.It is so contrived that it is comical to look at.
When the Anthropologist Dr. Schultz arrived on the stand, Casey looked on with objective interest as you can see in the photo above.
It is interesting to note that seeing the skull has no doubt taken it’s toll on Casey Anthony. She looks more gaunt after she had her anxiety attack yesterday. Most likely she did not feel like eating dinner after seeing photos of the frightening looking skull.
As soon as photos were shown of the skull , Casey immediately tuned away and placed her folded hankie under the nose.
According to reporter Kathi Bellich the photos of the skull are gruesome. Strands of hair drape across eye sockets. Teeth missing except for the molars (back teeth) . The hair matted. Duct tape layered across face. Apparently, Casey had initially stared at the photos and showed no reaction.
As Casey continued to fake cry with her dry Kleenex, Attorney Simms on her team who is known to cross examining experts has now been related to the official role of surrogate mother and comforter and emotion coach to Casey. As soon as an emotional reaction should occur, she puts her arm around Casey. Casey then immediately puts a tissue up tp her face.
The jury HAS to see this as phony and insulting behavior. Casey does leak out expressions of upset and anger periodically. No doubt she is upset that she is being forced to listen to testimony about Caylee’s skull and bones.
Suddenly the anthropologist mentions that the animals gnawed on Caylee’s bones. For the first time, we see Casey break down for real. She is beside herself and the veins in her neck pop out. She turns red and is flushed. Suddenly the Kleenex is crinkled.
This is no doubt the very first time that Casey Anthony has had to see the consequences of her actions. She now saw the consequences of putting duct tape over the child’s nose mouth and throwing her dead body in the woods. For the first time ever, she saw and heard the consequences of what happens when a body is thrown away-animals ea tit and gnaw on the bones.
I believe that those horrific words and that visual of seeing what animals did to Caylee’s remains will haunt her for the rest of her life. There is no one to soothe her when these images begin to surface in the middle of the night. Ms. Simms won’t be there and neither will her parents or Lee. Casey will be left all alone to deal with the consequences of her actions, which may be her worse torture yet. www.drlillianglass.com
